I'm back from the big state of Texas celebrating Ella Jane's first birthday!
I'm kind of pooped out right now, so how about we let little Ella Jane tell you how much she enjoyed HER day...
Welcome to my first birthday party!!!!!
Looky here, my cousins Candace & Josh bought me my first set of wheels. Me and Dad seriously need to discuss my gas allowance!
What? Did somebody say CAKE? eeeerrrrrch...
In order to eat my cake I have to wear this silly hat? Are you kidding me Auntie Penny? Momma, make her stop...it covers my beautiful little curls!
Auntie Jodie, make sure you get it on film that Auntie Penny is messing up my hair!
Okay then, ONE short pose for the camera and the hat comes OFF! Deal? I'm the Birthday Girl here...what I say goes!
Before I mess everything up, let me show you my cake, their cake, and all my little birthday decorations. Auntie Payton did all this just for me...isn't she the just GREATEST Nanny???
Now Auntie Jodie, you know those people want some closeups...show them the details!
I forgive Uncle Drew for driving so bad that my cake slid all the way to the back of the box...he was just anxious to come see me!
Just a few more details...I'm hungry for my cake and my bottle!
Nanny Payton wrapped the utensils with napkins and made my birthday hat. Looky at all my E's...my name is Ella Jane...and it's all about ME!
And Nanny Payton made these precious little pillow boxes for all my grown ups. Inside she slipped one of my modeling photos of me in a dress and bonnet made by my Tauntie Belinda!
But my special keepsake is my beautiful birthday banner my Nanny Payton made just for me...
I love my Nanny Payton so much...
Auntie Jodie, could you pa-lease show them some details???
Wow, good job with the close-ups Auntie Jodie! Thanks!
Everybody sang me Happy Birthday and I loved all of the attention (even though I didn't want anyone to hold me all day...I like being stuck like glue to my Momma!)
Now it's time to eat my birthday cake!!!!! Yay!
WAIT a minute...They lit the candle on my cake? Seriously? Do these grown ups know how dangerous this is for a sneaky little one year old? And they give me some chocolate but tell me not to eat it until I make a wish? Don't touch? What the heck?
Okay enough of that, I'm digging in...whether they like it or not!
Did I ever tell you how much I just love me some chocolate?
It's time to open some presents now! Yippie!!!
My first computer laptop from Maw Maw and Paw Paw B! How did they know that's just what I wanted? And some clothes too!!!
Here ya go Daddy, I'm just gonna pass them to you so I have more room to open some more presents!!!!!
Lots and LOTS of presents from my Nanny Payton and Padan Kristian...oh I hope it's more clothes!
A girl can never have too much clothes right???
Yay! Clothes was flying everywhere! Pink, purple, blue and yellow...I love it all! I'm gonna be the best dressed babe at daycare! Yay!
Break time...I need a drink!
What's with the big box? Oh! My table!
Thanks to all my uncles for putting it together! (It took all three of them with the help of my Aunties telling them HOW to do it!)
I love it!
What? This is it? No more boxes? No more bags full of clothes? No more toys?
I want some MORE, MORE, MORE!!!
Taryn put all my new clothes in my room and Momma said it's time to take a nap...this is SO not fair...I wasn't finished with my birthday!!!
Auntie Karen said it's time to tell everyone bye-bye and you can turn off the camera now Auntie Jodie.
I'm going take a nap, thank you all for coming and thank you for my presents! Can we do this again tomorrow????
Right about now, Auntie Jodie is going take a nap too ;)
